Actually, there's another issue that comes to mind here: since we are
relying on platform-dependent locale names, including those in the dump
is going to pose a severe problem for porting dumps across platforms
(where "different platform" could even mean "different libc release").
We're already at risk with respect to dumps from 8.4, even without the
I am not sure what we can do about this. Ideas?
